my doctor and she said it was negative?

User Profile
My husband and I are trying to conceive. I got a positive urine test at a pregnancy clinic and went home and took one myself, positive again. I made an appointment with my doctor and she said it was negative. I came home and took another test myself again half an hour after and it was positive. Could it be possible that the nurses at the doctors office read the results right away and not waited the time that should of been? I would like to know because I have had a miscarriage before and need to be extra careful on a day to day basis. According to the pregnancy center I should be about 5-6 weeks. My last period was from the 13-15 of October, which was very short since I usually last about a week. I have symptoms of pregnancy, really sore breast. light headed, frequent urination, and I am so tired all the time. Thanks for taking the time to consider my concerns.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes you can get false negative results with urine pregnancy test kits. Waiting longer than the prescribed time to read the results can also give you false negative results. If you are having persistent symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets confirmed with blood/serum HCG levels, then go ahead with getting serial HCG levels tested. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements should be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. An ultrasound scan done would also help in confirming fetal wellbeing and viability. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid lifting heavy objects or climbing stairs or standing for long periods of time. Look out for early danger signs like bleeding/spotting, increasing intensity of abdominal cramps and back pain etc. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. All the best.
Take care.
